Last year was quite the year and one of our most proud moments of the year was working on a project to simplify data for Adolescents and young people, a way of informing the public and making data about their Sexual and Reproductive Health simple, catchy and fun to comprehend.
Young people who have quality information on their SRHR are more likely to make better decisions about sex and other Sexual and Reproductive Health issues.
On Thursday 10th February at SWAG initiative headquarters in Abuja, the team held a VIRTUAL KICK-OFF MEETING with partners to kick start the project for 2022.
The Adolescent & Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health (AYSRH) Data Made Simple (DMS) Project aims to increase access to quality sexual and reproductive health information and services among young people in Nigeria.
The project will strengthen the capacity of Youth Data Advocates, Adolescent Health Desk Officers, Monitoring and Evaluation officers and community members to interpret and simplify existing AYSRH data into simple, friendly, catchy and responsive storybooks which will be used to educate community members, family planning service providers and decision-makers to garner their support and increase met need for comprehensive contraception care and education among adolescents and youth in the seven (7) implementation States in Nigeria.
Stand With A Girl (SWAG) Initiative is a registered youth led organization dedicated to ensuring that every girl in Nigeria no matter where she is born or found is empowered to fulfill her maximum potentials. Its goal is to promote a safe and supportive environment for the social, economic, academic and healthy development of girls in Nigeria.
